Fabien Tiburce, Peter Giansante presenting. Various (discrete and disparate) library systems have experimented with incorporating community-contributed content. Yet, as we are seeing, few systems, if any can gather a sufficient volume of contributed data to achieve critical mass and have a meaningfully presence in the OPAC. However, if this content was aggregated across jurisdictions (using a small footprint web-service model and centralized database), libraries could play a central role in the ...
